The facility is expected to create over 1,500 new jobs in the area, once fully operational. Heerlen is a gateway to European markets, and the distribution facility there will serve as a central logistics hub for JD Sports’ operations in Continental Europe with 3,300 shops in 32 countries. The facility will be equipped with the latest technology and automation solutions, and the site can accommodate future expansion.
The distribution center has been built to respect BREEAM “Very Good” standards, including optimal lighting and solar panels installed on the roof to supply renewable electricity to both the distribution center and 2,000 households
